Friday Links!

Leading off this week, and it's a great, great read: The Walter White of Wichita.

From Steven Davis, and this was an amazing fellow: Artur Fischer, Inventor With More Patents Than Edison, Dies at 96. Next, and my, what a surprise: Scammers and Spammers: Inside Online Dating's Sex Bot Con Job.

From George Politis, and this seems unwise: Hockey on one wheel: Unicyclists put a true Minnesota spin on hockey.

From Meg McReynolds, and this also seems unwise: 1910-1956 Auto polo: Country club meets Mad Max.

From Brian Witte, and how is this guy not better known? Peter Freuchen.

From Wally, and this is terrific: Every City Has Its Mysteries. Next, and this is from the Oatmeal (excellent as always): How Everything Goes to Hell in a Zombie Apocalypse. This is fascinating: "CHASING ICE" captures largest glacier calving ever filmed.

From C. Lee, and this could explain quite a bit: Why people cheat.

From Eric Higgins-Freese, and this is quite entertaining and informative: History of Japan.

From Jeff Fowler, and this is an interesting read: When U.S. air force discovered the flaw of averages. Also, and this is tremendous, it's Centriphone - an iPhone video experiment by Nicolas Vuignier.

Closing out this week, from Jeff Pencis, and this is a PSA: Why Shouldn't You Take Medicine with Grapefruit Juice?
